pip install glouton==0.12.0


Known Vulnerabilities Docker Cloud Build Status


This cli app is a downloader for the data provided by the satnogs network and the satnogs db APIs.

Installation :

git clone https://github.com/deckbsd/glouton-satnogs-data-downloader.git
cd glouton-satnogs-data-downloader
python ./setup.py install

or if you want to use it as a package:

pip install glouton

Here is an example of how to use the glouton Pypi package :

    from glouton.domain.parameters.programCmd import ProgramCmd
    from glouton.services.observation.observationsService import \

    glouton_conf = ProgramCmd(norad_id=norad_id,

        obs = ObservationsService(glouton_conf)
    except Exception as eee:
        LOGGER.error("data collection: %s", eee)

Usage :

If you plan to download data from satnogs DB, you will have to register yourself on https://db.satnogs.org in order to get an API key. Than you can add this key to the config file of glouton (/glouton/config.json)

Examples for downloading data from the satnogs network

simple command example for downloading :

python ./bin/glouton -s 2018-01-20T00:51:54 -e 2018-01-21T00:51:54 -n 28654

command example if you just want the archive files :

python ./bin/glouton -s 2018-01-20T00:51:54 -e 2018-01-21T00:51:54 -n 28654 --archive

command example if you want all data type from specific transmitter type, mode and uuid and apply module processing on waterfall :

python ./bin/glouton -s 2019-05-09T00:51:54 -e 2019-05-30T00:51:54 -n 40069 --waterfall-module TestModule,CSV --tuuid 8oBdHqMqgmMiWvRru6fWMn --ttype Transmitter --tmode LRPT

Examples for downloading data from the satnogs DB

simple command example for downloading frames for the satellite with the norad id 40014 and apply the process within the SomeModule module (You have to provide a module when you download the frames):

python ./bin/glouton --db --norad 40014 -s 2019-10-01T00:51:54 -e 2019-10-02T22:00:01 --frame-module SomeModule

Actual features :

* download data from satnogs db
* waterfall downloading
* archive downloading (formerly payload downloading)
* filters :
    * satnogs network
        * norad id
        * start date
        * end date
        * stations
        * observation status
        * transmitter mode
        * transmitter uuid
        * transmitter type
        * vetted user
    * satnogs db
        * norad id
        * start date
        * end date
        * observer
        * app_source
        * tranmitter
* working directory selection
* Docker container
* modules

Future :

* automatic mode for downloading automatically the new observations of one or more satellites.

Modules :

You can now create your own modules. The modules can be executed after each data download or at the end of the process once every data and other modules have been executed.

The module that you develop must herite from ObservationModuleBase (for data from satnogs network) or TelemetryModuleBase (for data from satnogs db) and must implement the "runAfterDownload" method or "runAfterDownloadCompleted" or both, depending when you want your module to run. The "runAfterDownload" method receive the file name (or the frame in case of download from satnogs db), the observation (or telemetry in case of download from satnogs db) and the full path as parameters. The "runAfterDownloadCompleted" only receive the full path as parameter.

Also the module and the name of the python file must be the same. The py file must be placed into the "modules" directory.

Here is a very simple example for a module used on the satnogs network data (this module is in the sources) :

from glouton.modules.observationModuleBase import ObservationModuleBase

class TestModule(ObservationModuleBase):

    def runAfterDownload(self, file_name, full_path, observation):
        print('executed after ' +  file_name)

    def runAfterDownloadCompleted(self, full_path):
        print("executed after the download is finished")

Here is another example for a module used on the satnogs db data :

from glouton.modules.telemetryModuleBase import TelemetryModuleBase

class TestModule(TelemetryModuleBase):

    def runAfterDownload(self, frame, full_path, telemetry):
        print('executed after ' +  frame)

Here is a example of a command you have to use to trigger the TestModule and the AnotherModule after each waterfall download :

-s 2017-05-20T00:51:54 -e 2017-09-20T00:51:54 -n 25338 --waterfall-module TestModule,AnotherModule

Here is a example of a command you have to use to trigger the TestModule after all waterfalls has been downloaded :

-s 2017-05-20T00:51:54 -e 2017-09-20T00:51:54 -n 25338 --waterfall-end-module TestModule

Or you can use the same module for both time, after each download and when the download is finished :

-s 2017-05-20T00:51:54 -e 2017-09-20T00:51:54 -n 25338 --waterfall-end-module TestModule --waterfall-module TestModule

Configuration file :

The config.json file into the glouton folder provides to you the possibilities to configure a proxy if you need it and also to add the modules you want to run permanently.

Docker :

Glouton has a docker image that you can download here on the docker hub.
